Just seven months after having her first child, daughter Maxwell Drew, Jessica Simspon has announced she is pregnant again.
Simpson, 32 used her Twitter account to confirm the pregnancy on Christmas Day. She posted a picture of a smiling Maxwell, in candy-cane striped pyjamas and sitting in the sand, above the words 'BIG SIS'.
It's been a big year for the singer, who is engaged to former pro footballer, Eric Johnson. She became a mum for the first time and subsequently lost close to 30 kilograms as part of a Weight Watchers deal. Her parents also filed for divorce, after more than 30 years of marriage, amid reports her father, Joe had been cheating with several young men. It is a claim he vigorously denied, but the rumours are said to have strained the relationship between the singer and her father, The Daily Mail reported.
As for Simpson's new pregnancy, it will be welcome news, if her experience of motherhood so far is anything to go by.
"I am so in love with baby Maxwell," she tweeted in May. "I want to cry every time I look at her. Motherhood is by far the best thing I've ever experienced."
Johnson, 33 is also relishing parenthood. "When you have your own kid, it's crazy," The doting dad said shortly after daughter Maxwell was born. "It's such an intense love, and so natural."
